David Strettle Saracens 2013

Two tries: David Strettle

Saracens wing David Strettle has paid tribute to the club's supporters after their impressive 40-3 bonus-point win over Newcastle Falcons on Sunday.

Strettle crossed twice in the game while Charlie Hodgson, Jamie George and Alex Goode also scored, with Hodgson and Goode kicking points.

"I love playing at Allianz Park," the wing said, speaking to Saracens' official website.

"There's a real feel good atmosphere around the place. The fans give us so much energy, they really back us and it really spurs us on as a team - it really is a great place to play your rugby.

"It was important to go into the Premiership break with some momentum, so to get the result was very pleasing. I can only echo what Mark McCall said, it was a complete performance - there was some excellent individual performances and I think as a team we couldn't be happier with the way we managed the game."

Strettle also reserved praise for some of his team-mates, including full-back Goode.

"I must give credit to the rest of the team as they keep providing me with opportunities to get over the try line," he added. "Alex has great vision, he is one of the finest full-back's in England at reading a game, he showed that during yesterday and luckily I was the beneficiary on two occasions.

"I also thought Marcelo Bosch had a great home debut as well. He is some player, it was great to play outside him."
